Hello my friends and happy Sunday to all!!!

Mary here with you today to share my latest layout featuring the beautiful ”I Wish” collection. I really love these papers because although it is a Christmas collection can easily be used in non-Christmas pages. Take for exable mine…

This time I made a soft romantic page with this beautiful photo, which as always found on Pinterest.  And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Close up 1

For my background, I used the ”I wish to play in the Snow” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”I wish you a Happy new Year”  and the ”I wish for frosty mornings” papers. I also placed some pieces from an old book and made a fussy cutting on some vintage clocks from the Vintage Autumn Basics ”No XVI” paper.

Close up 2

First, I gave my paper a coat of clear gesso and then I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. I heat embosed the paste with ”Golden Angel Wings” Lindy’s powder to make the texture more obvious. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Cowabunga Copper” and ”Cape Cod Coral” with some water to make a watercolor effect.

Close up 3

I heat embossed the floral chipboards and the title with ”Byzantine Bronze”. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing. The metal embellishments are ”Scrap Unlimited”.

Close up 4

As a final touch, I added some bronze microbeads and some Prima Memory Hardware – Glass Pearls.

Well, that’s all for today, my friends!

See you again in two weeks!

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

May your Christmas be filled with lots of happiness, peace and love!

Mary here with you today and I have a layout to share with you. I used papers from the ”I Wish” collection which matched perfectly the beautiful photo I found on Pinterest. Is there anyone who doesn’t believe on Santa? I still believe… and this photo was just perfect for a Christmasy post. But, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

For my background, I used the ”I wish you a Happy Holiday” paper and I made the layers behide my photo with torn papers from the ”I wish we will deck the halls”, the ”I wish for a holly jolly Christmas”. I also placed some pieces from an old book and two photos from the ”I wish – Ephemera”.

Close up 2

I applied on the center of my paper white gesso and then I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Before it gets dried I heat embossed it with ”Purely White” embossing powder. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Rudolph’s Nose Red” and ”Bayou Boogie Gold” with some water to make a watercolor effect. I also added some splatters with 13arts white splash ink.

I heat embossed the frame and the floral chipboards with ”Desert Moon Copper Pine”, the words and the dotted baubble chippies with ”King Midas Gold” Lindy’s embossing powders. All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing. The metal embellishments are ”Scrap Unlimited”.

But, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

For my background, I used the ”I wish you a Merry Christmas” paper and behind my photo I placed a die cut doily made from the ”I wish for a holly jolly Christmas” paper.

I also added some splatters with ”Lucky Shamrock Green” and ”Midnight Randezvous Raven”.

Hello Maja fans and welcome to the blog today!

This my second christmasy project using the ”I wish” collection and this time I made a layout. I can’t believe that we are already so close to Christmas… I love that season and I’m full with the Christmas spirit! And, that beautiful photo from pinterest was just perfect for the layout I had in my mind… of course, I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Close up 1

I used the ”I wish those memories will last” as my main paper and I torn it vertical on the left side. I placed under it, three layers of two papers, one from the same paper, one from the backside of the same paper and lastly one of the ”I wish for frosty mornings”.  Among the papers Ι added some lace and a few pieces of doilies.

Close up 4

I designed my background with modeling paste and a stencil over a coat of clear gesso.  I colored it with ”Dark Chocolate Truffle” and ”Clam Bake Beige” Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists.  I also made splatters with white 13arts Splash ink to highlight it a little bit. When dried I made some random stamping and the background was ready to glue everything down.

I heat embossed the chipboards with two powders, first with the ”Desert Moon Copper Pine” and then with the ”Cafe au Lait”.  All the chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

As a final touch, I added some mica flakes in ”Henna” and some ”Melange Art Pebbles”.
